The Department for International Trade has published clear, accurate, and up-to-date information on every signed continuity agreement to give businesses the support they need to enter new markets across the globe. We have recently published information on on the Japan Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA), including information on the rules of origin provisions. This information includes free-to-use online tools (‘Trade with the UK’ and ‘Check How to Export Goods’) so that businesses can check product-specific and country-specific information on tariffs and regulations that currently apply to UK trade in goods.
